Arnold Schwarzenegger puts film career on hold for personal issues
UPI News Service, 05/19/2011
Arnold Schwarzenegger will not resume his acting career as planned because he is dealing with personal issues, his management said.
Schwarzenegger finished his second term as California governor this year and announced he was looking to return to the big screen where he enjoyed starring in blockbusters such as "Terminator" and "True Lies."
However, he has since separated from Maria Shriver, his wife of 25 years, after admitting he fathered a son with a household staffer more than a decade ago.
Schwarzenegger's infidelity made headlines this week and he has since confirmed the story.
E! News said his representatives at Creative Artists Agency announced Thursday Schwarzenegger is now focusing on his family rather than his film career.
"Gov. Schwarzenegger is focusing on personal matters and is not willing to commit to any production schedules or timelines," CAA said in a statement. "This includes 'Cry Macho,' 'The Terminator 'franchise and other projects under consideration. We will resume discussions when Gov. Schwarzenegger decides."
